Forum: opensource_audio Subject: uploading new files to streaming player

I have started a page for our weekly Buddhist lectures here:
http://www.archive.org/details/MindTraining01

I want to upload them every week to the same streaming player you provide ,but so far only down loadable files appear...I am doing it for the community and wold love to make it as easy as possible to hear the lectures.
Thanks

(Edit: 2:25 pm - Ahhh I see you have a player on page... patience... It can take a while before everything happens.)


If you are using a standard av format the site SHOULD derive the files and set up a player on page automagically.

You might want to use and industry standard format such as 128k or i92k if you aren't.

As far as 'using the same player. Two options. To actually use the same player and page, just edit the page... go to the files (not 'xml edit') tab or link and upload another file. Via the http/flash upload method when you click the "Done" button @ the bottom of the page the newly uploaded file SHOULD get added to the dl list and player.

The other way, which I recommend for a series of shows, is just create a separate page for each episode and upload to that page. use some sort of titling that will create a standardized url, and use the same 'tagging' each time in the appropriate panel of the edit page.

Here's an example of a news series I do that uses separate pages. http://www.archive.org/details/tth_110217 If you put an '18' at the end of that string you'd get the next day's broadcast.

My "Subject" entry in the edit page: Travus T. Hipp;Cabale News Service;KPIG;Politics;News;Alternative News;U.S. Foreign Policy;U.S. Domestic Policy;Breaking Politics News;Realpolitik;Republican Family Values;Social Justice

It's the same every time with minor variations.

Hope that helped, and if you have a problem with the player appearing on page we'll need to know more about what you are uploading. Audio, Video, format... etc.

Ideally you would make a new item for each lecture and use keywords and have a collection created if you have 50 items uploaded. Items should not exceed 10GB so continually adding files to a single item will eventually create problems.

To add files to an existing item use "Edit item" then "change my files" (which takes you to item manager)to add and delete files. You would then need to start a new derive to have the streaming formats created.

OK thanks- that was the push I needed; to know the term "derive" on the 'change my files' option. Also uploaded the same lecture in mp3 and went right to streamer.
Will probably just create more pages as we go, perhaps in a chapter-like format.
In any event , I really appreciate the response, and cant tell you how much I appreciate the archive for TONS of reasons.
cheers

VBR mp3 is what the streaming player uses. If that is what you are uploading it should work for the player. We do encourage the highest quality files be uploaded. Several formats, including the mp3, will be derived.

I guess while I got you right here, can I get my files on the streamer to play in order if I rename them using the "01" "02" "03" scheme ? I take it thats the only way to organize play list?

Naming files with an incrementing number will list them in proper order in the player.
